Hi All,

 

Does anyone know if the titan #5 nib from bock with housing will just screw in place of the standard faber castell nib for example on the basic or ondoro... Has anyone tried it.

 

Thanks

William

No, stay with the original nib the pen came with. Why the hell would you want to change it to another nib. It is not  like you will be making a modification that will significantly improve your pen's performance.

Alright... so I went ahead and did it anyway...

The operation is not a direct swap... bock standard housing is much longer (so you will need the collar and feed from the original). The nibs are essentially the same size.

 

The number 5 nib does not have the same line variation that the number 6 does and it is only slightly softer than a steel nib.
